Here We Go Again!

Wow, I can't believe I'm actually going to make this leap...

...but I'm moving.

I told my future boss I wanted the job and I told my current boss tonight that I was going to do it.

My future boss is excited! She knows we are going to rock with that market!

My current boss understands but doesn't like it. She says I can only leave if I find her my replacement.

It was hard to tell her I wanted to go, even after all the bullshit going on with this job and department. I still felt guilty.

Is it bad I'm crossing my fingers that my dad doesn't get this job in Memphis????

So, I am sure to have more details as the days go by. I am probably looking at going out there around October.

Everything is very up in the air. My family understands. It's a great opportunity for me.

I need to make this long term. My definition of long term might be a little different from yours. I'm thinking like 2-3 years. By then, I will be done with my degree, will have a few years of multi-store management and training on my resume. I'll be ready for something big then!

So, I look around my house, depressed by the fact that I will have to start packing...again....soon. I just finished unpacking just recently. I just got my SC registration and tags in June.

Damn, I hope I'm not making a big mistake! But I could not find much wrong with moving to Arizona to take this job.

There are no mistakes... only alternate paths!

Whee! Here's hoping this works out great for you... I'll come visit you in Yuma! (It's not that big of a deal to drive there from Phoenix after all.)

Like Bou said, there are no mistakes.

And get some boxes and start packing a few things now. Also take the opportunity to unclutter a bit. Don't be afraid to throw stuff away, give stuff away, or sell stuff.

It will make the move easier.

Blogsis or not, I'm not helping you move!

I love moving. Well, except for the packing and unpacking. I love being unknown; getting to "start over". You'll be great!

I am so very happy for you.
You'll be awsome in AZ.
